ABOUT THE PLOUGH
Cassie and Joe are two lost twenty-somethings, both surviving alone in a big city. Joe has arrived in London to find the father who left him before he was born, hoping that finally knowing his history will make him feel like a whole person at last. Stargazer Cassie is searching for a purpose important enough to make her forget her old life in Scarborough - and the painful tragedy that drove her away.
After a chance meeting, the pair strike up an unlikely friendship and join forces to search for Joe’s missing father. And as the stories of their families' pasts unfold, blurring the lines across generations, connections between parents and children become as complex and enduring as the stars in the sky.
Set against a backdrop of busy London streets and sleepy Scarborough beaches, The Plough weaves theatre, storytelling, spoken word and live music to spin a tale of heritage and identity, love and loss, cosmonauts, heroes and baked beans.
